Disney Character Dining Buffets That Keep Us Coming Back For More


5. Good Morning Breakfast with Goofy and His Pals at Ravello

Goofy goodness for breakfast continues at nearby Ravello at the Four Seasons Resort in the form of the Good Morning Breakfast with Goofy and His Pals. While more typically known for offering up enticing Italian selections at dinnertime, breakfast accompaniments at Ravello are of a more casual and conventional nature, served up in bountiful buffet fashion complete with omelet station and all. But perhaps the best part of the meal is the complimentary side order of magical memories that will be yours as you get to mingle with Disney character favorites like Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy, of course.

As an added bonus, a photographer is onsite for each character breakfast occasion to capture the mealtime memories for you to treasure for all time. The Good Morning Breakfast with Goofy and His Pals takes place Thursdays, Saturdays, and on select Tuesdays that are in accordance to major school breaks and holidays. Please note that reservations are required in order to attend.

4. Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Café

Minnie Mouse likes to play host to her own breakfast buffet setup every morning at Cape May Café. A renowned seafood dreamer’s buffet during dinner hours, this Beach Club Resort restaurant is also well known for offering up one of Disney’s great many character breakfast buffets, hosted by none other the Minnie Mouse herself. She along with famed friends Daisy, Donald, and Goofy like to don their beachy best attire each and every morning in order to present a morning beach bash breakfast of high tide favorites. Food offerings range from traditional American classics and resort novelties alike, all “surfed up” in all-you-can-eat fashion.

3. Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo & Stitch at ’Ohana

While several of Disney’s all-you-can-eat buffets are fashioned after the get-up-and-go method of traveling to diverse serving stations, ’Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort does it up a little differently. With a name that translates to “family” in the Hawaiian language, it should come as no surprise that food here is served in all-you-can-eat family-style fashion straight to your table. And while both breakfast and dinner are done up accordingly, featuring an array of Polynesian-style fusions and flavors to boot, breakfast offerings come with an added bonus—the chance for fun-themed character interactions while dining by way of the Best Friends Breakfast.

Get ready for at-table visits with Lilo and Stitch along with Mickey Mouse sporting tropical attire and his faithful pal Goofy. While the unique island enticements and menu features are enough to make the meal memorable in its own right, the character visits and onsite camaraderie, which include dancing and other all-around friendship folly, make mealtime that much more magical.

2. Chip ’n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast at Garden Grill

Garden Grill Restaurant, located within Epcot’s Land Pavilion, is another all-you-can-eat family-style option with character interactions throughout the meal. This time it’s everyone’s favorite menacing chipmunk duo Chip and Dale taking to the limelight in presenting Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Harvest Feast. Mickey Mouse is also there, decked out in full farmer fashion and appearing alongside Pluto, ready to share in your fresh garden-themed meal that contains many green elements grown right onsite in Epcot greenhouses.

Garden Grill Restaurant dishes up the goods all day long, beginning with scrumptious all-you-can-eat breakfast traditions, and then unique seasonal enticements for lunch and dinnertime. In addition to character interactions to accompany every meal, the rotational spin of the restaurant and its centrally located elevation above the Living with the Land attraction allows for constant changing scenery to accompany your already delightful dining experience.

There’s plenty to love about this fun and fanciful buffet favorite at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Whether you decide to start your day off with the Supercalifragilistic Breakfast or top off a happy day with an equally Happily Ever After Dinner, each experience features character interactions and table meet an greet visits to accompany some of the very best all-you-can-eat meal offerings in all of Walt Disney World.

For this engagement you will enjoy a meal with Alice and the Mad Hatter straight from Wonderland, Tigger and Pooh direct from the Hundred Acre Wood, and the practically perfect Mary Poppins herself, of course. Dinnertime is nothing short of a fairytale featuring Cinderella and Prince Charming ready to meet and mingle with diners and even pose for a most memorable photo op.

All the same, we promise the meal will be one of magical memories and a true happily ever after.

In addition to traditional all-you-can-eat buffet offerings, Disney character dining comes in many other forms, some of which include popular picks like Cinderella’s Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park, the Bon Voyage Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno, and Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White, to name a few. Likewise, there are numerous other entertaining mealtime experiences to take part in as well, from dining with imagineers or animal trainers or just taking in a fun-themed meal throughout the various parks, resorts, and at nearby Disney Springs.
